Okay, here's the latest:
Now running revision 12497 / 12490 (master running 12497 due to dts.h bug)
Everything has been fine over the weekend where I didn't have any directories assigned to 'High Quality' on the master... Maybe the entire group vanished... Not sure.
Anyway... Played a few shows today before mounting /vol/TV3. No problems whatsoever.
Mounted /vol/TV3 but didn't assign it to a storage group. Still no problem. Good.
Ran mythtv-setup on my master backend and put just /vol/TV3 as directory for 'High Quality' after creating the 'High Quality' group...
Went to view a show. Got a segfault the first time I tried seeking in the file. mythallways got it back up again in no time. Seeking afterwards was fine. The frontend didn't blackout this time.
Next show - played back just fine, no seeking issues. Exited the show and pressed 'u' to see which host it was recorded on. segfault. Interestingly, it is recorded on the third backend (the one with /vol/TV3 proper). mythallways got the master back up again. the frontend came back to life.
Played third show. Recorded on the backend the frontend is running from (the second). No problems this time (quick seeking and exiting)
Next show - marked start and end, exited, made it transcode, no problems. Recorded on the master backend...
Fith one - nothing to report.
Sixth - also no problems...
Seventh - segfault seconds after seeking began. Actually there was a segfault before that that I didn't even notice...?! Second time - no problem. Recorded on third backend.
I'll now try to set the 'High Quality' Storage Group to /vol/TV on the master in stead..
Got this when I exited mythtv-setup:
2007-01-16 23:36:38.613 Connected to database 'mythconverg' at host: 192.168.33.12

2007-01-16 23:37:06.541 MythSocket(8230f38:12): readStringList: Error, timeout (quick).
2007-01-16 23:37:06.707 Unexpected response to MYTH_PROTO_VERSION:
A fith segfault occured at some point...
No new segfaults as of yet, but the first show I tried to watch did give me a black screen.. I'll wait a bit for some of the transcode jobs to finish...
Load at around 10 right now.... I think it's the same transcode-job running three times!! Either that or it has three threads... Okay, not three threads. The segfaults must have started new instances... One finished, killed the other two.
One more segfault have occured, maybe when I killed the two mythtranscode processes.
Eighth show - segfault again... It doesn't seem to be NFS-related, then... The frontend when black.
Removed the 'High Quality' Storage Group on the master. Restarted the frontend.
Now the eithth show will start.
Bummer. Just when I though I was in the clear:

It does seem that the amount of segfaults lessen significantly if I only have the 'default' Storage Group, though....
